Emerging Student Leaders Program
Do you want to become a LEADER and have fun while doing so? Then the Emerging Student Leaders Program is for you!
The Emerging Student Leaders Program is an elite and interactive program open to freshmen and sophomores designed to enhance you as a leader and student here at UAlbany.
Each section will meet on Fridays during the spring 2014 semester for 10 weeks beginning February 7th. The first section will run from 1:00-2:30PM and the second section will run from 3:00-4:30PM. Attendance at a minimum of 7 sessions is required for program completion. Since participants are expected to stay for the full 90 minute session each week, please make sure you can commit to one of the scheduled section times for the entire semester. Participants selected for this program will be placed in a section at the time of acceptance based on the availability provided by the student on the application form. A graduation ceremony is held the final week (May 2, 2014).
Special thanks to University Auxiliary Services for their support of this program!
